Dafeng Zushi (1039 AD, 1127 AD), a famous monk in Chaoyang in the late Northern Song Dynasty, real name Song Dafeng. His deeds have been recorded in the historical books of China and Southeast Asian countries, and the main philanthropic cause is to build bridges for the benefit of the people. In the sixth year of the Northern Song Dynasty Hui Zongzhenghe (1116), Dafeng Zushi came to Chaoyang, Guangdong from Fujian, to raise funds by himself, and built the Peace Bridge in Chaoyang, which was built after 12 years of hardship to the end of the Xuanhe Southern Song Dynasty. The local residents were grateful to Dade and built a "Baode Hall" next to the bridge to honor him.
